BlOg yOur Omelet! Announcing my new Contest with a Giveaway♥

Eggs are such an important ingredient in all kitchens and diets! We use eggs for such different purposes: cakes, omelets, quiches, muffins, coatings…

So far, I have participated in sooooo many events that I thought it was high time to get my own contest going! I have thought about eggs because I bet you all have your own traditional omelet recipe, or your favourite’s picnic omelet, or maybe your grandmother’s recipe for fritata… if you do and want to share and participate; find hereunder easy instructions:

* Post a new recipe in your blog with your omelet or fritata. Tell us the story of that recipe if you want, if there’s no story behind, no problem.
* Please take some pictures and include them in the post. Mention the event: BlOg yOur Omelet and include a link to this post. You can also show the logo of the event if you wish (optional).
* Send me an email to: with: Your post URL, Your blog tittle, your name and a picture of the omelet attached. The subject of the email should be BlOg yOur Omelet. Please send it before the 15th of May.
* The round up will be published the 18th of May.

There will be a Giveaway for the winner!!!! I’m sending over 150 grams of Iberian Acorn Ham. One of the most delicious and best Spanish treats!!! If the fortunate winner thinks she/he might dislike it, then I can send some Spanish Chorizo or Longaniza (we can talk about it :D).

So, don’t be shy and participate in the Contest! It will be fun :D… and we all can learn lots of new recipes from the Round-up.

Here is my Omelet to start with the Contest: Codfish Omelet.

Once the omelet is cold you can have it like this: in pinchos, or as a tapa with a good glass of beer! Enjoy this one and share your omelets too!

Obviously, I’m not participating for the prize ;D. I will take all your entries and make a little lottery game to get the winner’s name. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!


Ingredients for 4 servings: 400 grs of desalted Cod fish, 6 big eggs or 8 medium, 4 big onions, 1 red small hot pepper, 4 fresh parsley branches, olive oil, salt and a can of roasted piquillo peppers.

  • Wash and dry the parsley leaves and when completely dry chop in small pieces. Reserve.
  • Peel the onions and chop finely in small dices too. Reserve.
  • Pour 2-3 table spoons of olive oil in a non sticky fry/sauce pan and start cooking the onion at medium/low heat together with the hot pepper and a bit of salt. Stir and cook for aprox. 20 minutes. Once the onion is transparent take the pepper away and reserve.
  • Beat the eggs in a deep bowl and reserve.
  • Take the desalted, shredded and dried cod and place in a non sticky pan together with the onion and a bit of olive oil and stir for 2 minutes at medium/low heat. Add the parsley, stir well and add the mixture to the eggs' bowl.
  • Mix well all ingredients, taste and add salt if necessary. Be careful, cod fish could be a bit salty.
  • Clean the non sticky pan and pour some drops of olive oil, when it's a bit hot, add the omelet ingredients and let them rennet for some minutes. Turn the omelet upside down with the help of a Tortilla flipper or a big plate and cook the other side until brown.
  • Insert a tooth pick to see if it's done inside, if it comes out clean, your omelet is finished!
  • Serve it with some piquillo Peppers... the combo is delicious!

It’s good you are not participating because a codfish omelette sounds like a winner to me! I’m happy you gave us some time to complete the task. This way I’ll be finished with my culinary tour. I already know what I will do for this.

Hola guapa, m’acabes de deixar morta, no coneixia el teu bloc i m’he quedat al·lucinadeta de les teves creacions. Un petó.

I just did my fritatta post yesterday, but I’m sure I have more up my sleeve – especially if there’s jamon iberico involved! :-D

My father is a huge fan of omelet and I always try to bake one for him whenever we see my parents. He has yet to be fully blown away by any of the recipes i’ve tried. Simplicity is key, and yours looks perfect! Can’t wait to try it.

I love eggs. I live in a dorm, so I make fluffy omelets with electric omelet maker and only takes about 5 minutes. Electric Omelet Maker

The omelets look delicious.

Wow, this is really fun! I do really love eggs and to be honest, my favourite is the simple way of cooking it, sunny-side-up. I do not really cook because my mother does all that task and it is really fun to just wait for it to be cooked. Thank you so much for this recipe. I am going to ask my mother to prepare this for breakfast. Thank you again.
